| A Classic after More Than Fifty Years
The scientist Dr. James Xavier (Ray Milland) is researching an eye drops that increases the power of the vision. Dr. Xavier decides to test the drug on him and finds that his experiment gives X-Ray vision. However his research fund is cut off, despite the efforts of his friends Dr. Diane Fairfax (Diana Van der Vlis) and Dr. Sam Brant (Harold J. Stone) to explain its importance to the investors. Dr. Xavier proceeds testing the drug on himself and realizes the wrong diagnostic of a teenager that will be submitted to a heart surgery. Dr. Xavier does not allow the surgeon Dr. Willard Benson (John Hoyt) to carry out the surgery and is accused of malpractice. When Dr. Sam Brant tries to stop Dr. Xavier of using his eye drops again, he reacts and accidentally kills his friend.

Dr. Xavier flees from the police and works blindfolded in a carnival "guessing" written information. However he is recognized and soon he invites Diane to travel abroad with him. But he decides to go to Las Vegas first to raise money in a casino, with tragic consequences.

"X – The Man with the X-Ray Eyes" can be considered a classic after more than fifty years. This movie is one of the best works of Roger Corman. Ray Milland has excellent performance and the conclusion is creepy. There were rumors about an alternate ending where Xavier would scream "I can still see" but Roger Corman tells that it was a creation by Stephen King. My vote is seven.
